Mr. Babatunde Akinbiyi, the spokesperson for the Ogun State Traffic Compliance and Enforcement Corps (TRACE), confirmed this unfortunate incident to the press in Abeokuta.

The accident took place at 7:10 a.m. at Ayedere village, in the Ewekoro Local Government Area, Ogun State.

Akinbiyi explained that the collision was caused by the driver of the unregistered Mazda car, who recklessly drove against traffic and collided head-on with the Mazda bus bearing the registration SEY 311 ZY.

Tragically, both drivers of the involved vehicles lost their lives instantly due to the severe impact of the collision.
